    this will never happen. Verizon will jump through hoops to keep this phone on the market for as long as they can

    The TB is selling extremely well and the battery "issue" is no more an issue than the battery life on any HTC device or smartphone for that matter. The complaints read on this and other forums are just a small percentage of users. The majority are satisfied and have no need to come to the forums to reiterate their satisfaction. Please post a link to said article.

    No way. It would have to be as big as a failure as the Microsoft Kin piece of junk to get pulled this quickly after launch.

    This is totally baseless and makes no sense to boot. Do you really think VZW is going to pull this phone? They never pulled the BB Storm and that phone actually had issues, the TB is fine there are no major issue with the handset. There are a few lemons that got through on the first batch, however that happens with every handset at launch.

    The BB Storm is one of the most nortoriously bad devices in recent memory, and VZW was still selling them. Even after it was proven to be the device and not just a few bad apples.

    I don't see why this would even be posted here without a link to back it up.

    Granted I'm in a 3g only area but my thunderbolts battery life is exactly the same as my Droid one.

    no way...phone is selling very well! And an update is in the works, so I hear! Update will focus on battery consumption, and then after that we should be looking at GingerBread comin down the pipes.

    I doubt this highly. I was just at my local Best Buy, looking for cheapie screen protectors for my soon to arrive replacement TB and there was a heck of a line at the cell phone desk.

    I figured since I heard the word Thunderbolt about 20 is 3 minutes it's probably doing well. Also they had no protectors and only the icky silicone cases. If that's a sign then it's doing well.

    With 3G, I was able to go 36 hours with 6 hours up time. Just WIFI on with 30% brightness. Still have 40% left. I was confused.

    There are some that are expecting Droid X type battery life.
    I have not seen that yet from this device but going 20-24 hours is not unusual with it.

    It works for me.
